What, you ask, is Leptis Magna?

Archaeological Site of Leptis Magna - UNESCO World Heritage Centre
Its Phoenician name was Lpgy (no vowels, of course). Anyway, here's the UNESCO page that describes why Leptis is a World Heritage Site: huge, magnificent Roman remains. On the Libyan coast; work on it ground to a halt during the isolation years of the 1980s and 1990s, until Libya opened back up again (somewhat) recently.
